Overview

At the Columbus State University we offer a Modern Language and Culture - Spanish Literature and Culture Track. The department's philosophy emphasizes faculty-student contact outside the classroom and individual attention for our majors and minors. 

We are proud of our program's practical outcomes over the past six years: All our graduates in the Teacher Certification track secured employment teaching HS Spanish in Georgia and elsewhere. 

Our faculty's expertise encompasses a broad range spanning Latin American literature, Hispanic women's writing, Spanish and Latin American culture, Hispanic linguistics, and the use of technology in the Humanities. Our students can take classes at the Elementary and Intermediate levels in French, German, Japanese, and Latin. We also offer Elementary Arabic classes.
